    Translated and revised by Robert Fagles, this edition of The Iliad provides a readable version of the ancient tale of the Trojan Wars. Designed to make the flow of this classic poem accessible to modern readers, the translator has not attempted to produce a literal line-for-line translation of the original work by Homer. This version provides readers with a faithful but flexible rendition of the famous story of the siege of ancient Troy. The subject matter is filled with references to war and violent behavior, pagan gods and goddesses, along with references to the passions of men, so readers should be prepared to confront such issues if they choose to pick up this classic book. This resource is included in the Well Planned Gal Ancient Civilizations’ curriculum. 600 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

     This extensive collection of poems, drawn from the archives of Poetry magazine, feature works from many of the most famous poets of the twentieth century. This collection could well be entitled ‘A History of Twentieth-Century Poetry,’ so readers should expect to be exposed to a wide variety of poems, both traditional and unorthodox. Famous poets such as Yeats, Frost, and Eliot are included, as well as many less prominent writers. Many of the selections present themes or perspectives that are somewhat dark or brooding, and few are what might be termed uplifting or inspiring. It should be mentioned, however, that the poems in this anthology contain very little profanity or blasphemy. This resource is included within some of the Well Planned Gal curriculum’s Modern World and Geography sets. 488 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

     This inductive Bible study focuses upon the book of Daniel, with special attention given to the author’s view of the key prophetic passages that are found within this portion of Holy Scripture. The author interprets each prophetic passage in terms that are consistent with pre-millennial dispensationalism, or what is sometimes called pre-tribulation rapture theology. In addition, the author includes helpful discussion questions at the end of each lesson that can be used by either individuals or study groups. These questions are often designed to encourage readers to make a personal application of the passage or passages that they have just finished studying. This non-consumable book also includes memory verses, maps, and historical timelines. The Well Planned Gal includes this study within one of its high school level curriculum kits. 128 pgs, pb. ~ Mike
